Despite now officially being Autumn here in England and with a slight drop in the temperature, the Sun doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon!

With that being said, it is still important to protect your skin from the Sun’s harmful UV rays and over the past month or so I have been trialling out the Daily Defence Shield SPF 30 by Elemis.


  • Contains Enviro-Age Complex, Coconut and Jojoba

My skin is rather fair so I tend to use high SPF suncreams as I burn rather easily, so I liked that the Daily Defence Shield had a high factor.

Prior to applying the Daily Defence Shield, I used the Pro Collagen Marine Cream (which I have previously reviewed which can be read here) as my daily moisturiser and then applied the Daily Defence Shield on top.

I applied a small amount across my face and I found the texture of the suncream to be very lightweight and easy to apply with its applicator. That being said, if I was abroad or somewhere where I was constantly in the Sun, then I would apply and layer the suncream throughout the day accordingly!

One of the things I also enjoyed about using the Daily Defence Shield was that it didn’t have that greasy feel to it! It absorbed easily into my skin leaving it to feel hydrated.
